Reverse Linux question :p


Ive been using *nix systems my entire life (yes seriously, even as a child). Im very accustomed to them.

I've learned Windows recently, its really not that hard, but I have one question.

What is the preferred way of remote administration? I dont want to screw around with remote desktop. Im used to tools like ssh, screen, ftp, sftp, blah blah blah.

I have a need to remote admin some windows boxes (with $0.0 budget). I dont suppose an open-ssh-msdos-bastard server works over cygwin (heh, no)?

I'd ideally like to remote admin windows boxes from my linux laptop/desktop, which is why im posting here.

Any ideas anyone?

If you're learning windows, get to know remote desktop. It's ok really.

Yes, remote desktop is ok.
You can also install ssh server on windows and use windows' powershell.
you can try pstools: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb896649.aspx from a windows box (probably in virtualbox or wine?)

Seconded! There's plenty of RDP clients available for various flavours of Linux. Embrace Win

I find that rdesktop serves all my remote Windows administration needs for the Windows versions (XP and later) that support remote desktop. You need to enable the remote desktop capability locally on the Windows machines first.

For earlier Windows versions (I still have Win98 and Win2000 machines running), I install VNC software locally on the Windows machines so that they can be remotely administered from a web browser.

You can use 'remote desktop services manager' in a domain to control your remote desktop configs.

If you ve been using *nix systems your entire life "(yes seriously, even as a child)" , then you will get a very bad taste into da' mouth trying to compare windblows to *nix.
Some will react against me telling that I'm wrong . Please send me an email after 1 year or so !

I did it backwards , using MS my entire life , and switched to *nix 7 yrs ago . Feel sorry I did.nt do that 20 years ago !


Sincerely ,
gabriel@linux-romania.com
